Default Headlight dance

Please help... My car winks... The head lights open and close over and over.... Right now I have the actuator arm disconnected and prop them open when I have to drive at night... The motors run constantly... They did run constatnly when off and when turned on they would stay open. So I just pulled the fuse. But now they don't even stay on...Help please.

Does it blink at a consistent rate? Or is it random?

Are you talking about the lazy eye where they are half down? Or are you talking about literally just have one headlight down and the other up?

I think something is messed up with the limit switches but I'm not sure. I've never messed with them before.

I actually gave you a straight answer, on one of your old posts regarding the same question. That is the way to do it!
